‘Bothers me’ – Everton player opens up on people blaming him on one of his struggles

Amadou Onana, Everton’s midfielder, was applauded by the media in Belgium for his performances in their victories over Sweden and Germany last month, writes the SW.

Following the elimination of the national team from the World Cup, Roberto Martínez left his role as manager, and Domenico Tedesco was appointed as his successor.

During the World Cup group stage, Onana played in two matches and received a yellow card in each of them, leading to his suspension for the Croatia match. He is unhappy with people who blame him for the bookings he received in Qatar.

Onana told RTBF: “Yes, it bothers me that people keep coming back with my cards! Either you ask me to have volume in my game, or to be tender and present the cheek to my opponent,”

“Here in England, which is the most committed championship, I only took 6 [note: 7] in 26 matches. So, I am able to hold myself back but my position is more exposed to this risk.”
